The Dell Rapids School Board approved authorization of plans to move forward with a new trip planned for high school students to Washington, D.C. during their regular meeting on Monday, April 11th. The trip idea was proposed by teachers Mr. Shriver and Mr. Welbig.
High School Principal Dr. Kludt mentioned to the board that the trip would occur every four years starting in the spring of 2017 and would be open to all high school students who participate in a U.S. History course. Dr. Kludt also said that the difference between this trip and the 8th grade trip is that the students have studied more history and would be more interested in learning more of the finer points. The anticipation is that more juniors and seniors will be interested in this trip.
Students would have to pay for the trip, but fundraisers would be held as much as possible to help the students fund the trip.
The travel company being used for the trip is World Strides.
